Development of replacements for individual missing teeth is one of the most important technological advancements in dentistry over the past century. Dental implants make it possible to restore missing teeth without sacrificing the integrity of surrounding teeth. Like any technology, however, its promise is subject to a range of variables that affect outcomes. CACI researchers study these variables systematically and report evidence-based guidelines for treating patients with implants.
